How are we doing? Since there is no legislature in session, the Governor will not give a state of the state address this January. So Ben Philpott of KUT radio (90.5FM) and the Texas Tribune asked some of us who are living through it to give our perceptions.
Basically, we all independently think that things are pretty static but teetering and could go either way. We do think that things will eventually break — just when is anyone’s guess — we’re hoping the log jam breaks in 2010 which would mean a good state of the state address in 2011.
Personally, I hope people who have not lived through a downturn keep positive and don’t make a “knee-jerk”, too quick response. It is not necessary to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
After you listen, tell me what you think. Do you agree with us or not? What are you experiencing in your business and what do you hear from your customers?
I am going to be putting your comments and current stats and trends in my own state of small business post coming soon.
